Aren't LED's still at a ridiculous price, like around $4-500 last time i looked. IMO fluoros would work just as good if not even better and for what 30-40 bucks and that gets you more than enough for a couple of plants.

Yes, they are still expensive. The prices on ebay are all over the place if you track them. The 168 LED screw in bulb ranges (at auction) from $22 -$45. The 900 LED panels in red go anywhere from $120 - $175 plus shipping. The one I am using for supplemental light in the phototron cost me $35 delivered. Trying to buy another one for another germing tron but I keep getting outbid.
Not too sure of the LED effect but the plants seem to develop a much more broadening of the leaves under it's influence. At least using this bulb I cut 17 watts from my power bill.
No noticeable deteremental effect has been observed. I have 5 Trainwreck feminised seedlings that are 3 weeks old under 12/12 under the light and I expect they will display sex this week. I am neither pro or con at this moment.

I've read some other posts and what I've concluded is that these should only be used for vege growth, and then switch to a regular light (HPS, MH, or fluoros) for the flowering process (since your going for low wattage then fluoros prolly be the best)

With the success in Floros and HID, I don't know why anyone would spend that kind of money on a proven-to-fail technology.

dude this is a ten year old thread. don't buy blurples (mars hydro).

If you want to get LEDs, Look into COBs, quantum boards, or bridgelux EB strips. There are lots of threads on DIY builds and kits. Also, check out growmau5 on youtube. He's got a lot of well-produced videos that discuss LEDs.

I’m using 3 hydro galaxy 300 watt broad spectrum LEDs and two 45 watt t5 48” fluorescents. No problems here at all. Very little stretching, gorgeous green leaves...... no complaints here. I do bloom outdoors though cause I’m in Hawaii and a I can all year round

Yeah definitely don't get blurples they sometimes work out but not the best. Like clown baby said look into diy cobs like some cxb3590 or veros something along those lines.
